(overcloud) [stack@director ~]$ openstack floating ip create external Error while executing command: NotFoundException: Unknown error, {"NeutronError": {"message": "Subnet 902c4c7a-6f16-4ef6-898e-7cae333c87c4 could not be found.", "type": "SubnetNotFound", "detail": ""}}

i dont know what is the issue. Am i doing something wrong? The subnet exists in that network.

You need to be admin in that project to execute neutron commands, I believe.

I think you are wrong, eblock. To create a floating IP, one has to specify an external network.

Rajath, can you add a network and subnet listing to your question? Use code tags to format it in a readable way.

Also, who created this cloud and how (looks like TripleO)?

I think his external network is called „external“ according to the output, so that is provided. But of course I could be wrong, no doubt. ;-)

Please check who is the owner of the subnet 902c4c7a-6f16-4ef6-898e-7cae333c87c4 - probably it is some different tenant.

My external network name itself is "external" sorry for the confusing name.. Also how to check for ownership of the subnet?

@Bernd it was created by our IT admin. But i have root access to this setup
